In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurant I want to talk about self-healing. Chinese medicine has been around for centuries and is known for its healing and medicinal benefits. These techniques simply are deep breathing, gentle movements, self-massage and meditation. You can practice these techniques 10 to 15 minutes a day and you will be more resistant to stress side effects, illnesses and you’ll find yourself to have more energy and get less tired.
Deep Breathing: In today’s world we have almost forgotten how to breathe. Shallow breathing constricts blood vessels and can cause high blood pressure. Shallow breathing also lowers the immune system by slowing down immune cells and blood circulation in the body.
Gentle Movements: Studies show that gentle movements can fight disease and increase body’s immune system without increasing the risk of muscle or joint injury.
Self-Massage: Self-massage has been used as an incredible source for self-healing. You can gently massage your body and feel the warmth of your hands. Chinese people believe that sending the warmth of your hands all over your body can heal diseases and lower the risk of health problems.
Meditation: Meditation can dilate blood vessels, help with production of essential hormones and lower blood pressure. Emptying your mind and relaxation can do wonders and heal diseases, reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue and lower high blood pressure.
